Jurassic World Evolution Developer Confirms More Content in Development
Jurassic World Evolution and Zoo Tycoon developer Frontier Developments confirms that more content is coming for the dinosaur park building sim.
Despite its last piece of DLC releasing in December 2019, Jurassic World Evolution developer and Zoo Tycoon creator Frontier has confirmed that more content is coming to the dinosaur park building simulator.
Jurassic World Evolution was one of the Epic Game Store’s free December games, and it came to the Nintendo Switch for the first time as a Complete Edition before that. This fresh influx of players has renewed interest in the game and led to fans asking if there will be more content on social media.
In a surprise to many, the official social media accounts for Jurassic World Evolution responded, saying “the Jurassic World Evolution team is still hard at work,” and that a reveal of what Frontier has been working on will come “later this year.”
Whether that means more DLC or a full sequel remains to be seen. The first game released in June 2018 alongside Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the second entry in the Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard-led sequel trilogy. It could be that there is a sequel coming alongside Jurassic World: Dominion, intended to be the series' sixth and final movie. Dominion was originally supposed to release this summer but was delayed to June 10, 2022 due to production issues related to COVID-19.
There is also the Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous animated series on Netflix, which is likely to receive a third season later this year. It is possible that the Jurassic World Evolution Twitter account is teasing a DLC based on the series, which has proven to be popular among hardcore Jurassic fans. The second season of the show teases a new genetic hybrid dinosaur, which would be a perfect fit for another DLC. Though a near two-year gap between the last DLC and when this hypothetical new DLC could be announced makes a sequel sound far more likely.
As for when Frontier will reveal what it has been working on, the original Jurassic World Evolution was announced at Gamescom 2017. Since Frontier is a British studio, Gamescom 2021 could make the most sense for this reveal, and it is currently scheduled to take place from August 25 to August 29.
Jurassic World Evolution is available now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
